AR Insider, by Kelly Malone – Consumer marketing of 5G feels ubiquitous. While 5G will eventually deliver significant benefits to consumers, enterprises will be first to realize the technology’s advantages.
The combination of edge computing, 5G devices and network coverage will create a tipping point for an enterprise cellular market that will become as ubiquitous as Wi-Fi is today. And AR will be the poster child for 5G’s benefits.
Backing up, the sprawling footprints of industrial organizations beg for technology like 5G. High-speed cellular coverage will be available throughout dispersed industrial environments that can’t be served by Wi-Fi alone. And 5G cellular connectivity for field-based use cases — including AR platforms that help front-line workers keep complex machinery in good working order — will realize ample value.
